A new poll conducted by the research firm Anzalone Liszt Grove has found that 62% of Florida voters have either already voted in favor of Amendment 2 (early voting began last week), or they plan to do so. According to the survey, only 35% plan to vote against the proposal, with just 3% being undecided.
Amendment 2, put forth by the organization United for Care, would legalize medical cannabis in Florida by making it a constitutional right. If approved into law, those who receive a recommendation from a physician would be authorized to possess up to 2.5 ounces of cannabis, and dispensaries would allowed as a means of patients obtaining safe access to the medicine.
Anzalone Liszt Grove concludes their study by pointing out the importance of voter turnout, saying that; “Florida doctors may soon prescribe medical marijuana for those suffering from debilitating diseases. But turnout is important. If the Yes on 2 campaign continues turning out strong supporters to the polls, then medical marijuana can pass statewide.”
The poll, which focused on the actual language of Amendment 2 that will appear on the ballot, and not a summary of it as other polls have done, can be found by clicking here.
